Well just recently Linus W specifically wanted us to use regulator
framework for the MMC1 PBIAS rather than pinctrl. That's because
from consumer driver point of view, it changes voltage and there's
a delay involved. So I guess no conclusion yet, and it's best to
do stand alone drivers to deal with those that use pinctrl for the
pinctrl specific parts and export it as a regulator for the consumer
devices. That's pretty much along the lines what Roger has done,
except the transceiver could use the pinctrl-single,bits for the
muxing and pinconf.
